Continuing from his solo exhibition in 2016, the exhibition will feature approximately 20 prints created using trees as motifs, focusing on the beauty and divinity of nature and its relationship to human beings. The exhibition will feature the "collagraph technique," in which various materials are printed on top of the print material, as well as the use of Japanese paper, which creates cracks and wrinkles that remind us of a long time ago.
